Genesis 49:27 "Benjamin is a ravenous wolf; In the morning he devours the prey, And in the evening he divides the spoil."


Wolf Characteristics:  Wolves are very intelligent creatures whose upright ears, sharp teeth, pointed muzzles, inquiring eyes and other facial features instantly convey this quality.  Wolves can roam large and long distances, sometimes up to 12 miles (20 kilometers) in a single day. Wolves prefer to eat large animals like deer and one wolf can eat 20 pounds (9 kilograms) of meat at a single sitting. 


Who was Benjamin?  Benjamin was the son of Jacob and the twelfth-born and youngest son in Jacob’s family. He was born to Jacob’s wife Rachel, making Benjamin the full brother of Joseph. His story is found in Genesis chapters 35–49. Benjamin was not part of the gang that attacked Joseph and threw him in the pit, the picture we have of Benjamin is a calm and quiet person in the Bible; however, imagine his father calling him  as a ‘ravenous wolf!”  Ah! Don’t underestimate by  looks! You never know…..still waters are deep!  Actually Jacob was prophesying regarding his son, he was looking at his future when he said: ‘Benjamin is a ravenous wolf!”  Are you listening? 


Now turn the Bible with me to Deuteronomy 33:12 and here we see Moses say this about Benjamin: Deuteronomy 33:12 "May the beloved of the LORD dwell in security by Him, Who shields him all the day, And he dwells between His shoulders."  Here we have a picture of Benjamin as an adorable child of God, sitting safely on the shoulders of His Heavenly father!  This scripture is an absolute contrast of what we see Jacob talk about Benjamin, isn’t it?   However, we need to have both the qualities to function in the vineyard of the Lord, Jesus was called the blameless Lamb and also the Lion of Judah.  Don’t allow people to take you for a ride, they need to know you have a lion roaring on the inside of you and a sharp wolf that is not going to be cheated.  Ah Ah! Caveat!


You got to be like a sharp wolf and not let anyone come and give you chocolates, ice cream and invite you for dinner, you should not allow anyone to come and approach your children with wrong motives, be a wolf and a lion and protect your kids.  Don’t allow crooks to come  to you with attractive offers and con you with rubbish , be alert! Be smart like a wolf!
